        I have plantar fasciitis and googled what shoes are best for this. These came up, I bought them (a half size bigger than my normal per the RR recommendation) and the fit is perfect) and they provide relief for my foot like no other shoe has and trust me, I have spent plenty of money finding the right shoe. I usually have problems with foot pain after walking and with these- NO pain. I walked through Disneyland for two days in a row and I had no pain what-so-ever. I love them! Roadrunner had them to me in 24 hours. Awesome experience all the way around.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Nimbus 16 Running Shoe:

        Once you get the sizing correct they are awesome. Underneath the big toe is where they wear thin for me. I replace them every 3 months, they are worn to daily run 2 1/2 miles and walk the same distance. I have separate pair that are worn for non work outs. I wore other brand (high end) for 30 years (30!) Finally gave up on them after huge amount of back pain last year. I did try the kayano but like the nimbus better. I love the arch and the way they support and encase the foot.

                I normally wear a woman's size 6 1/2 - 7 narrow dress shoe. I bought these in a size 8 narrow and they fit perfectly. I run 3+ miles every other day--great fit right out of the box. I underpronate--cushioning appears just right. Great sneaker and I would highly recommend them.

                  The toe box is much roomier than the 15, which my feet need. I bought the nimbus 17 but because the 16 has a roomier toe box, I bought another pair of the 16. Alternating them on my runs, keeps my toes happy. Both are highly cushioned and keep me going for miles.

                    I loved the Nimbus 15. After reading all the comments I bought both the Nimbus 17 because of the better reviews but decided to also try the 16 because they were on sale. The 16 fits me and my feet better so much that I bought three pairs! Comparing the 16 and 17. The 17 is more cushioned. For me that is almost too much cushioning. The 16 is a little more sprigy and I like that. This said it is cushioned and comfortable. The 17 are also a little wider. I have narrow feet for the narrower fit of the 16 fits me better. The heal fits my feet perfectly too. So my recommendation is that if you have narrow feet you give these a try.

                      My previous shoes were Asics and I loved them so much I wanted a similar replacement, but this style is considerably more narrow. I loosened the laces so much that I barely have enough left to tie them. Even so, my toes are so squished from the sides that my feet go completely numb after a few minutes of running. I gave them a week to loosen up, but to no avail. I love the look of them and they seem well cushioned so am genuinely disappointed that they will have to go back.

                        I love the Asics Gel nimbus. I have two pins in my foot from a bad break. These shoes have the best support for running. I love the neutral shoe with a little more cushion. I run, walk and cross train in them on a daily basis. I have 3 pairs of the Nimbus that I rotate daily so I don't wear them out.

                          I love these shoes. They are cushioned but not too much. They provide good support and are comfortable right out of the box. I run in a neutral shoe but have some pronation issues with my right foot and these shoes manage that without over-correcting. I'm training for a marathon and so far, this shoe is fitting the bill.

                                  I usually wear a 9.5 but had to get these in a 10. This is my third pair of the Nimbus 16s. I have IT band problems because I'm a heal striker. These shoes have great cushioning for those long runs and have helped me ease my IT bands. They're like wearing slippers! I've ran and trained for 3 marathons and one ultra marathon in these shoes and they STILL feel brand new.

                                    I've been running for 15 years and recently ran my first marathon. I loved my nimbus 15. I suffered from planter facitis. This shoe has so much cushion they feel so comfortable. But you will have to get them a half size bigger because of all the cushion. I decided to try hokaone because I heard that they were also good for PF. But they don't have the cushion that I need around the heel. So I purchased the nimbus 16 and my feet feel great. No pain in my heel or bottom of feet. These are my favorite shoes for pavement.

                                              This is a great shoe! I am a runner and love these shoes. I have run in the Nimbus for years and love them. These are right on par with the amount of cushion needed for someone that runs daily. The comfort is unbeatable and my joints thank me every day I wear them!

                                                I use with custom orthotics inserts and perfect fit. Just recently started a walking program and these fit and are very comfortable. My feet don't swish around.

                                                    I am a daily runner --on the roads, 5-7 miles. I ran in my first pair of ASICS--the GEL NIMBUS 15 --this year and immediately became a fan of ASICS! I recently purchased the NIMBUS 16 expecting the same great fit and feel--and am very Disappointed. The shoe fits 1/2 size shorter and while the cushioning is great, it does not have the crisp, responsive feel that the NIMBUS 15 had. I have a narrow foot and heel and have run in New Balance shoes for years but have recently become very disappointed in the wearability of their shoes so decided to try ASICS based on the offering of a narrow shoe size. I hope the next version of this shoe will not disappoint!

                                                      I ran a 5 mile race with these shoes over the weekend and was surprised to find the following day I was not feeling intense pain from my Plantar Fasciitis. I've been suffering from this for close to 2 years and with other shoes have always experenced a lot of pain following a road run, but not with the Nimbus 16. Very happy with the degree of support and comfort. If I have a complaint it's the color choices - but I can live with that if it mean no more pain

                                                        I wear these three nights a week for boot camp and then twice a week at the gym for weight training and running on the treadmill. I've got a wider, size 12 foot and these not only fit great but also look nice on my feet.
